Here is a tasty primal dish. This Jambalaya is tangy and spicy and chock full of fresh meats and veggies! Perfect for a low carb, gluten free, sugar free and/or paleo diet.

  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 large onion, diced
  • 2 andouille sausage, halved lengthwise and cut in 1/4-inch half-moons
  • 6 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 (15 ounce) can crushed tomatoes
  • 1 red bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 green bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 1 yellow bell pepper, seeded and diced
  • 2 zucchinis, diced
  • 2 tbsp Cajun seasoning
  • 1 tsp hot sauce, or to taste
  • 1 cup chicken broth or chicken stock
  • 1 pound chicken breast, cooked, cooled, and chopped
  • 1 pound cooked, peeled, and deveined shrimp
  • 2 tbsp lime juice, or to taste
  • 2 tsp salt, or to taste

  1. Heat olive oil and butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the onion and andouille sausage and cook and stir until the onion starts to brown, about 10 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes.
  2. Mix in crushed tomatoes, bell peppers, zucchinis, Cajun seasoning, hot sauce and chicken broth; bring mixture to a boil, reduce to simmer and cook uncovered until the liquid cooks off and the mixture is thick, about 15 minutes. Stir in chicken, shrimp, lime juice and salt and simmer until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes.


This dish is not recommended for children as it is a bit spicy. You can reduce the heat by minimizing the amount of bell peppers, eliminating the hot sauce and opting for a sweet flavored sausage. However, the lime juice and salt harmonizes with the spiciness of the dish.
